Well that was embarrassing. That, more so than anything else is what snapped Mia out of it all. Defeat was one thing but this... this was running away.. only worse. At least if she was running away like a complete coward it should be on her own two feet.
Seriously, how could she ever allow her self to fall this low? What was wrong with her? Enough, she reasoned was enough. She wasn't just representing her self here but her entire world, no her entire universe. Hell judging by the fact none of these aliens knew of them quite possibly literally her entire species in all universes. By her horns she would do better than this.
And if she couldn't win this time than fine. She would just have to do what she always did. The only thing she knew to do.
She would get stronger. And than she would win.
Mia stood up silently. Casting one glance on the portal she said under her breath. "I will be back." Than she turned to the others.
"I am alright now.", she lied.
"I don't know what we saw back there. And I don't need to know."
"What I know is that there is no point in us knowing until we can do something about it."
"We need to get stronger. Much stronger. What ever it takes."
"And I do not know how."
She figured she was saying what everyone thought. And she hoped that somebody had an answer.
